        Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

        This pencil does not last very long due to the fact that the sharpener breaks the point off frequently. I only had it for about 1 month. Also, it does not glide smoothly at all.

                I bought 2 liners in different colors. I immediately LOVED them. Easy to apply, great colors, lasted all day! But when I needed to "turn" the applicator to bring up more of the color.... NOTHING! I first thought that maybe the one color was possibly defective ..... but when the other one had the same issue, I became very disappointed! Can it be possible that these only last a week?!?

                      Conceptually, I love it. Execution, however, was not suitable for my lids. Water proof, maybe... I could not test that due to it not holding up to sweat and/or tears. Maybe it was the California heat (bought during a visit earlier this month) or my eyelids being oil slicks, but it just transferred and faded within minutes, not even exaggerating. I gave it several more shots, but it did not prove to be as I needed or as it claimed. I welled up during an unexpected emotional moment, and it came off on my tissue just dabbing at the corners of my eyes. Well, I gave it to my daughter to try. Hope it works for her. Unfortunate disappointment for the price.

                        I can't say difficult to remove is a con... isn't that sort of the point of the waterproof liner? I live this. I was at an outdoor festival in NC in nearly 90 degree humid weather with sweat running in my eyes and it still didn't smudge. You also can't cry it off. This stuff is the real deal.

                          How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                            Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.

                            Try these steps:

                            Put the cap on the liner.
                            Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                            Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                            You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                            Remove the cap.

                            That should sharpen it!
